Dog training at home.
This section is entirely dedicated to training dogs at home. I will not write banal things about what to train a dog needs a professional, etc. Because it is not, or rather not quite so. Of course if you don’t have the time, opportunity or desire to play with the dog, it is better to consult specialists, but if that’s all you have, then what could be better than a dog that is trained by you personally. The dog that was with you a long and difficult journey from puppy to adult obedient dog is the ideal which can and should strive for.
If you read this section, I guess you decided to train your dog yourself, and I’ll tell you-that’s right! The main thing is to have enough spirit to bring this initiative to its logical conclusion, not to throw halfway. In this section I will place all materials on an independent training dogs.
The word training derives from the French “dresser” and it means to teach. This means that the dog is taught to perform specific actions on specific commands or conventional gestures.
You need to immediately separate the concepts of training and education. We often hear the requests of the people who bring your dog for training:” we need that dog dug holes in the yard and only went on the tracks” or “the dog barks 24 hours to your neighbors, make sure that she did not bark”. These questions are not solved by training and what the trainer will not help you if you don’t educate your dog. The trainer can teach your dog the command “come” to come to you on command “Place!” to go to his place on command “Sit” to sit at the command “Lie!” lie, etc., but the trainer could not force your dog not to chase the cat or the cyclist not to jump on you legs and not to chew your shoes. Raising a puppy is a big issue .
Today, there are many different types and systems of training dogs. What the difference is. I would divide all of the services that trained dogs, two large sections. The first section is smaller, this obedience is a basic section that has all kinds of training, whether it is the Soviet school(bas) or Western training(IPO). This is because the companionship of a dog that does not know basic commands very difficult or generally not possible, not to mention further education. Just as one cannot study mathematics without knowing multiplication tables, cannot be dealt with a dog that is not suitable for the command “come” or has not ceased its actions on the command “No!”. In General training includes the commands needed in daily communication with the dog for a hassle-free and useful communication as man and dog. This team “To me!”, “Impossible!”, “Next!”, “Place!” “Sit!”, “Get down!” etc.
The second section is special training. This section is much more diverse. Here the training is, basically, is for professional. I mean, service dogs are prepared by various services, such as domestic protective-guard service, guard service, investigation service, the rescue dog, etc, as well as a variety of foreign types of training: IPO, shutzhund, mediaring etc. Hunting dogs are prepared for their professions: hunting, hounds, greyhounds, etc., received widespread different types of sports training such as agility and the like.
What should be concluded? To undertake the education of the dog should be from the first day of its appearance in your home. To train a dog in obedience is necessary, to what extent and in what way it’s up to you. As for special types of training, it is possible to do them or not depends only on your desire and possibilities.
